Delight - What is it?
Join us for our series - Delight
From Rev. Justin Rossow: Of course you will know struggle and failure. Of course you will know grief and shame. But you don’t have to carry the burden of getting your faith walk right; you already make Jesus jump for joy and sing his happy song. The Creator of the Universe thinks you’re something special. Even when life is confusing or difficult, the Spirit is shaping you with care and delight.
Delight - How do I get started?
Get the Book
Get the book - Copies of the book, DELIGHT: Discipleship as the adventure of loving and being loved, are available in the church foyer. The books are free though there is a $10 suggested donation if you are able. (You can also purchase your own copy online. There is a Kindle version available on Amazon.)
Use our reading calendar
To help you stay on track with the preaching series, we have created a reading outline calendar. You can see it on this page, download a copy or pick up a hard copy from the Welcome Center. Pastor Rossow has also created videos of himself reading the book, so if you'd rather hear him read the text, check it out on his Facebook page.
Engage in conversation
While you can read the book and reflect on the section questions on your own, there are other ways to connect over the content. Form a book club or a small group of friends to read and discuss the book together. Trinity's early morning men's Bible study will focus on Delight through February. Or, come to E3, our Wednesday evening experience, where we will have a pastor-led study and discussion on "Discipleship as Delight."
